Suspended Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma has amended his lawsuit against NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the league, asking a federal judge in New Orleans to overturn his suspension and issue a preliminary injunction that would allow Vilma to work while the case is pending.

Life-long New York Giants fan James Douglas (JD in Dallas) passes away at age 35

Brees Wins His Grievance

Hot News for QB Drew Brees

Report: Saints, Drew Brees about $1 million apart

Getty Images According to ESPN’s John Clayton, the New Orleans Saints and quarterback Drew Brees are still about $1 million apart from agreeing on a new contract. “They’re really about a million dollars apart as far as trying to get a deal done,” said Clayton.

Fuzzy math: Eli Manning has already made his mark; most of the NFL doesn’t know it yet

Look, being a New England Patriots fan, this is the bitter, jagged pill to swallow. However, we have to give credit where credit is due. Most of the NFL can make assumptions mainly because their team can’t get anywhere near the Super Bowl, let alone win it. Eli Manning have broken Patriots hearts on two occasions, and that’s enough for us to say: “Give it up will you?”...

Former Giants WR Amani Toomer says Tony Romo is the best QB in the NFC East

Co-Hosting on Sirius XM NFL Radio’s Movin’ the Chains Thursday afternoon, former Giants WR Amani Toomer and Host Tim Ryan took a call from a fan asking who they thought would win the NFC East.

Tony Romo vs. Eli Manning, It’s not all about the stats

Here we go again! It’s time for Tony Romo vs. Eli Manning. The experts like Ron Jaworski have Romo ranked as the 10th best QB in the NFL. He has not ranked the top five yet, but Manning will do no worse than number five on his list. The NFLN recently completed their list of the top 100 players as voted by the players and Romo is ranked 91st and Manning is ranked 31st. What...

Amani Toomer: Tony Romo is probably a better quarterback than Eli Manning

Prior to last season, there were probably a number of people who believed that Tony Romo was a better quarterback than Eli Manning. Now, that population is nearing extinction. Manning is a two-time Super Bowl MVP and Romo has won one playoff game in his career. Last season, Eli led more fourth-quarter comebacks than anyone in the league and lit up the stat sheet in the process. Despite...

Morning Huddle - Romo better than Manning?

This is why I'd take Manning over Romo in a heartbeat. Anytime someone talks about Tony Romo as an elite quarterback, I tend to cringe a little and walk away. Every now and then, someone like Amani Toomer compares Romo to another established quarterback, in this case Eli Manning, and says Romo is the better quarterback. From a purely numbers perspective, Tony Romo is a very...
